Australian Buying Group visits UK

Published:  11 November, 2015

NMBS, the largest independent Buying Society and electronic trading platform in the UK, recently played host to Australian Buying Group Natbuild, as part of its continued development and exchange programme with other buying groups.

As part of its visit to NMBS' head office in Leicester, Natbuild also visited one of the UK's largest independent builders' merchants EH Smith, who showed them around one of their key branches at Enderby.

NMBS managing director, Chris Hayward, said: "NMBS is always looking for opportunities to meet with like-minded buying groups from other countries to exchange ideas and thoughts. We have a strong and lasting commitment to continually develop the very best service for our members and suppliers and are extremely grateful to Sean Furlong and Chris Atkinson at EH Smith, who spared the time to show the Aussies around a 'proper merchant'. The members from Natbuild thoroughly enjoyed the experience."
